5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Wonderfalls 3 Feb 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A superb, quirky, inventive piece of television, this unjustly cancelled gem is worthy of a place in any discerning viewer's DVD collection. Wonderfalls details the trials and tribulations of Jaye Tyler (the sublime Caroline Dhavernas), a philosophy graduate wasting her life in a Niagra Falls gift shop that gives its name to the title of the show. Jaye's life plods on, drinking with her friend Mahandra, managing with her go-getting family until one day a defective toy, wax lion starts talking to her. After this one inanimate animal object after another gives Jaye abstract advice sending her on a series of adventures that see her begin to make progress in her life and touching those around her. Parts of this may sound clichéd but honestly, you've never seen anything quite as unique and original as this. Wonderfalls is simply a delight to watch, from the pitch-perfect acting to the superb writing, nothing is amiss. An absolute must buy.

By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There's always the danger of over-hyping with a show that was cut short prematurely and not given the chance to get into any kind of groove and really shine, before a merciless axing by an uncaring network. But that is definitely not true of `Wonderfalls', because as much as I enjoyed Bryan Fuller's other (more successful) creation `Dead Like Me', as an entirely different fantasy-comedy-drama `Wonderfalls' completely out-classes the competition, which is all the more impressive considering only thirteen episodes were ever made.

There is no Pilot for `Wonderfalls', no extra-length special to present the audience with the premise of this series and set the tone for the season to follow- the series just begins with little explanation or establishment and I think that's to the detriment of the show. The network obviously agreed because it was cancelled after a meagre four episodes were aired across the pond. But it's those further nine episodes that complete the season and which really see this oddity of an animal come to life! While I've gotta be honest and admit that the first few episodes are a little pedestrian, very soon `Wonderfalls' becomes surprisingly addictive television. Once you reach the final five episodes and especially the closing moments of episode 10- `Lying Pig' when an emotional tone begins to creep in beside the comedic one, I guarantee it will become clear to you just how attached you've gotten to these characters and in such a short space of time.

In one of the ways `Wonderfalls' shines particularly bright is in the writing- there are some absolutely cracking lines throughout each and every episode, it's more like poetry than dialogue, as barbed remark connects to witty off-the-cuff jibe leads into perfectly delivered punch-line without pause for breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonder-fall 28 Dec 2005
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Wonderfalls" was one of those outstanding cult shows that burn bright and briefly -- it lasted only four episodes before being yanked, with nine more as yet unaired. Now fans of this cult show are rewarded with the full series, in all its witty, quirky glory.

Twentysomething Jaye Tyler (Caroline Dhavernas) is an underachieving slacker. She has a philosophy degree from Brown University, but now works as a shopgirl at Niagara Falls and lives in a trailer. Needless to say, her ultra-successful family finds this galling and disturbing, even though they themselves are far from the Cleaver clan -- her sister Sharon (Katie Finneran) is a lesbian, her parents are splitting, and her brother is just a weirdo.

Then weirder things happen to Jaye. Suddenly toys are talking to her, and prompting her to help the people around her -- returning purses, dealing with ghosts, helping an old enemy from high school, and deal with a long-dead Indian girl. Following the instructions of her "muses," Jaye begins to learn a few things about other people, and the quality of kindness.

It's an unusual idea for a TV show -- an embittered young woman hears "muses" talking to her, including a stuffed lizard, lawn flamingos and a brass monkey. Most people would just check themselves into a padded cell, but that doesn't make for scintillating TV watching. So instead, it becomes a deeply warped inspirational series.

What sets it apart from other series is the surreal touch and wicked sense of humor. It's never made clear why Jaye hears toys and bookends talking cryptically to her -- is it God? Aliens? Her own mind? Pantheistic souls in everything?

5.0 out of 5 stars "Are you the evil cow?" 7 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
I don't wish to sound harsh but whoever cancelled this needs a slapping. I watch a lot of TV of many varying degrees of quality (Charmed take note) but this is the first time I've purchased DVDs of a cancelled show based on reputation alone. A friend drew my attentions to the tireless efforts of the savewonderfalls.com website and the way they and the creators of the show talked about it had me intrigued. Suffice to say, it was a good risk to take, this is my favourite ever television show. Wonderfalls as a premise does sound a little strange (over educated and unemployable graduate working in retail store gets told to do things by small cuddly bears and smush faced lions... thankfully it is the damn funniest, most heartbreaking (and warming) peice of art (there I said it, TV can be art) I'v ever encountered. The delivery of the show feels (at least to me) like somewhere between My So Called Life and Dead Like Me. If you could give more than five stars I would. I have a favourite new missanthrope and her name is Jaye Tyler.

2.0 out of 5 stars Almost funny
I can see why this show didn't survive as the light humour falls rather flat and leave the viewer wondering why they're watching a show about a bunch of social misfits. Read more
